222 Notes

Continuing his exploration of vice and cruelty through a naive guise, Victor Castillo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 23) will open a new solo show at Los Angeles’ Merry Karnowsky Gallery on February 2. Titled “Under Heavy Measures,” the new body of work features paintings on canvas, paintings on paper and fiberglass sculptures. Castillo explores social injustice and political strife in his work through a cast of storybook-like characters that appear at once sinister and childlike. For this new series, he utilizes a bubblegum-colored palette that illuminates the dark content of his work as well as his painstaking painting process that involves aggregating hundreds of layers of color to create the illusion of depth. Take a look at our preview of the show below, images courtesy of Merry Karnowsky Gallery.  MORE: http://hifructose.com/2013/01/31/preview-victor-castillos-under-heavy-measures-at-merry-karnowsky-gallery/
